Shraddha Srinath, who is shooting for Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai, will be making her Bollywood debut with Milan Talkies, but she is not ‘star-struck’ about the glitz and glamour of the Hindi film industry.
The actress says she has good work in the southern film industry and would tread the path in Bollywood very cautiously.
Shraddha has worked in Kannada and Tamil films, with projects like U Turn, Kaatru Veliyidai and Vikram Vedha to her credit.
“The first step is to wait till Milan Talkies is out. Some calls have come but I can’t take that too seriously. I want people to watch me perform and see how I look on the big screen and then call me,” told Shraddha.
“I am in no rush. There is enough work down south. I am going to take it easy. I am not someone who is star-struck about Bollywood. There is very good work down south for me,” she said.
“There is good work in Bollywood also. For me, the idea is to pick wisely regardless of the language. My stories mean the world to me. Bollywood maybe Bollywood, but I will tread very cautiously,” added the actress.
Getting into films was never a part of Shraddha’s plan. She rejected the idea because of her looks and went on to study law. “The only reason why I rejected the idea of films was because I thought I was not fit for films. I was like this chubby girl with curly hair and dusky skin. And I was happy eating my food and not doing any exercise. Films were not in the pipeline. I was like ‘I am not glamorous enough. I am not beautiful enough to be an actor’. This was the only reason why I never considered films,” she said.
Looking back, the actress said, “Before I joined college, I was into acting and for me the most obvious medium to act was on stage. I took up acting in plays in college. By the end of college, I knew that law is not for me and my heart belongs to acting.”
